Do you not see the tears in mine eyes
Do you not realize how you've made me cry

Words are sharp you know
they cut like a knife
yet leave a longer lasting blow

Do you not see the pain in my face
the word you speak ready to obliterate
I hear them
I hear them all
The barbs the jabs digging into me
as claws and nails would

They leave their mark
Not on my skin
But on my heart

this is for those who are under others scrutiny and can't find the words to fight back.
